Musings of a New Grandma
12.30.09 | | Comments
My daughter just gave birth to my first grandchild, Antonio. He was born on Christmas Eve morning. He's definitely my best Christmas present ever! I had the privilege of being in the delivery room when he was born. After twelve hours of labor and 75 minutes of pushing, there he was, a brand new life! I've had two children, but never experienced the miracle as a spectator . It was incredible!
Antonio Orazio Campanella is a big name for a little guy. I've been trying to come up with a nickname (not Tony!) other than "sweet baby boy." Any suggestions?
I love to hold him and talk to him. I tell him about how much fun we're going to have together. We'll read books, take walks, make cookies and sand castles and create special memories together. I can't wait to tell him the story of his birth. To tell him how his mommy and daddy couldn't wait to see him and how much they wanted him!
The days since his birth have been like walking in a fairy tale. Seeing my own little girl become a mom and my son become an uncle has been like a dream. It's fun to watch your children grow and embrace every new season of life. And this is a wonderful new season for all of us! What's next.... watching Antonio experience those same seasons. Life is so exciting through the eyes of a child!
